 Mt. Everest 2005: Everest from the North: June 2nd (in China), 2005 almost everyone updated


Area after the summit pyramid ©EverestNews.com 2004

Update June 2nd (in China early in the day): Here is a run down... Somewhere around 124 climbers left to attempt over the next 5 or 6 days. We have two confirmed Summit pushes on the 31st. BRAZIL climbers who turned back and a climber who was seen on the Summit pyramid around 6 pm, no this is NOT a typo, 6PM, not 6 AM, but 6PM!!! This is not a rumor, but a confirmed fact that a climber was up there.. The wind was high.

So who left on the night of June 1st: Martin Minarik was expected to attempt... George and Lakpa we believe are on the way up.

Note: No Update means we don't know if there is a change...

First those at high camp

George Dijmarescu and Lakpa Sherpa heading up!: (They don't need last names!) We will see if they go soon... They have the "spider" with them... George is going for 7, Lakpa her 5th!

7 Summits Club Summits, better known on the mountain as the Russians: at are at high camp. The Sherpas that were waiting at high camp have headed down... Did not go last night. Some more went down including Alex the expedition leader, other stayed. Unclear is they are going up right now or not...

Mt. Everest 2005: Martin Minarik: Chess by himself? is at high camp or higher as we speak.. Probably heading up right now...

British Commercial Team: Went from camp 1 all the way to camp 3 and met the wind!! (Maybe they should have stayed with Brice at camp 1!): they are at COMMERCIAL CAMP 3, not the same 3 as these others teams, sorry. Sounds like they don't like the wind.

Others at high camp, include several of the Asian trekking group of independent climbers.

Jose Ignacio jijon Soares was at camp 2 or 3 if he moved up: No Update

Johann Goger was at camp 2 or 3 if he moved up: No Update

Indian Army (aka the "girls"): some men too and a bunch of Sherpas.. they have moved to high camp and were expected to go up..(right now); They have a lot of oxygen and many sherpas.

Big Green Everest Expedition: A couple of guys with some Sherpas from Asian Trekking.... They moved to high camp and were expected to attempt the summit.

Camp 2:

Mt. Everest 2005: Indian Air Force Summits Three on Everest: but they had a hard go of it. More on that story later.  They have more to attempt, but unsure of the plan. We were told they have climbers at camp 2 and camp 3. No Update except Mt. Everest 2005: Indian Air Force missing climber

Camp 1: The Commercial Boys! Last but not least!

The other half of the British commercial Team, moved to camp 2

Brice's commercial team ... minus one guide... We will let him tell you the story... We do expect a Christmas card.... get out of the way, here comes the boss! No Update
